In the glass this Paso Garnacha shows a staining ink core surrounded by bright purple edges that fade into a pinkish purple halo….
The nose is a BLAST of cedar shavings and raspberry preserves ————> A second sniff brings out a dried herb and potpourri flower component that is ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS….
A sip starts a bit tight with a blackberry and black cherry medley that settles into mouth-coating fig and pickled beet notes ———-> The mid-palate carries the weighty mouthfeel and soon opens into cherries and plums before this sexy beast finds its’ way into an allspice and sea salt sprinkled cranberry ending that’s tied together with cottony tannins that last welllllllllll past my sip….
Damn I love Grenache. Here’s a BIG ASS expression of the variety from Villa Creek outta Paso Robles ———-> While this thing is a behemoth of a wine it’s also well layered, extremely balanced, and sexy as hell!!!! 🎧🎧🎧 Listen to this wine with a big song straight off of the Central Coast like Moonshiner Collective – Right Kind
